Death of Christine Sudarskis
Dear colleagues and members of INTA
Our dear Christine just left us yesterday
Her big heart did not withstand a long unequal struggle, despite her courage to get up whenever evil took her.
Christine Sudarskis presented us with her intelligence, dedication and perseverance so that INTA can assert itself as an international association with as major concerns the sustainable and just development of our urban communities, but also of the spaces of relationship between urban and rural, according to a perspective of complementarity and solidarity.
As an advisor to several presidents and an active member of INTA's former permanent secretariat with Michel, her long years companion and now husband, Christine has always been a respected voice and an extra strength and enthusiasm to advance our remarks. Even in the darker times, especially during the pandemic and when her illness hit her hardest, Christine never gave up and found extra strength to keep us going. We will not forget!
Thank you very much Christine.
7th of May 2023.
Fernando Nunes da Silva
President of INTA
